Where’s Nat?!

Where's Nat?

Still here. I promise.

I’m currently doing “stuff and things” related to the upcoming release of Necromancer FallingAnd playing a ton of EverQuest 2 because my Freeblood Swashbuckler is almost max level.

Necromancer Falling has been one of the most challenging projects I’ve been a part of. I’ve found it’s never easy to pull off “book 2” of a trilogy. Though it’s a “book 2”, the story needs to be self-contained. You can’t make too many assumptions about how much a reader remembers from “book 1”. You have to reintroduce old characters without boring the people who have great memories. The list of potential problem areas goes on.

And…once you’ve managed to get to a point in your craft where you no longer make the same mistakes you made in early drafts of “book 1”, you invent a whole new set of problems and habits to break.

But we’re in the home stretch now! The cover art is complete, and I’ll be sharing it with you all shortly you can see it over on the right-hand side of the blog! I’ll be spending the next three weeks or so in final edits. And, come hell or high water, Necromancer Falling will be in your hands toward the end of May!

Cheers!

    You know, lol, the first thing I thought when I saw this headline in my email, was “Where’s Nat At?!” 😉

      Yes, Nicolas is definitely back! You’ll also get to spend some time with Mujahid and Tithian, Siek Lamil and Toridyn, and we’ll even get to know Kaitlyn a lot better.

      There are also a couple of new characters that have emerged as “fan favorites” in feedback from the ARC copies I sent out. The story is a bit more ambitious than book 1. Definitely a bit longer. And we get to see a little more of the world of Erindor.
